Booked this hotel to our stay in NYC in the end of November. This hotel was a really pleasant surprise. The room was not as small as we anticipated. We had booked a room with the view, in this case that meant a real view to the 9/11 memorial and to the buildings around it. Amazing. Bed was comfy and... More

Great view of the World Trade Center from their restaurant balcony. We had the most beautiful photos taken from the location and away from the ground crowd. The room is small but sufficient for our one night stay.

The World Center Hotel is pretty standard across the board. Definitely has more of a business feel across the board from the room set up to the clientele (lots of airline attendants and pilots). The hotel is located directly across from The Freedom Tower and only two blocks over from the 1 line, making it only about a 15 minute... More

The hotel ain't really easy to find because Washington St. is a tiny stretch hidden by construction sites, but if you look up (and if you're a tourist that's something you often do in NYC) you'll see a large banner hanging outside of the 15th floor with the hotel name on it. Service was always prompt and kind but, as... More

Basking in the shadows of the new Freedom Tower and the 9/11 museum, the hotel has a modern European flavor. Our eighth-floor room had a crisp compact rectangular almost Swedish design with a cozy small sitting room with a fantastic view facing the Freedom Tower and easy to open windows giving a patio-like experience. Unusual closet space design made it... More

This is a great find! I was looking for something close to World Trade Center Memorial and I was lucky enough to choose this hotel. It has an amazing view from the 20th floor restaurant & lounge.

You enter straight to the bed which is followed by a kitchen area and table, then the bathroom and the living area is overlooking the World Trade Centre site and a little cold in the winter.
